Teacher - Health & Social Care
Activate Learning is a forward thinking organisation, where people come first. Activate Learning’s standards of behaviour encourage staff to earn respect by aiming high and making it happen; this unique ethos cultivates creativity, innovation and an aspirational learning environmental, for both staff and students. Teaching and learning is at the heart of all we do. Therefore working at Activate Learning promises to be challenging; as a large organisation, we can offer staff exceptional opportunities to develop their own professional skills, supported and guided by national recognised teaching and learning experts.
We are looking for either qualified or unqualified Health and Social Care professionals/teachers to challenge our learners to explore opportunities beyond their expectations, embracing new innovative teaching methods. You will:
- Be self-motivated, with the talent to drive up standards, nurturing and developing less experienced staff
- Preferably have experience in the delivery of Health and Social Care programmes in a Further Education environment
- Be able to engage with health professionals to enrich our learners’ experience
In this role, you will be tasked with ensuring the curriculum meets the needs of employers and developing project-based learning opportunities that challenge traditional classroom delivery.
Our Health and Social Care provision is part of the Services to the Public Faculty and is delivered across all Activate Learning campuses. Our teaching staff are responsible for the teaching, learning and assessment of their specialist programmes.
The faculty has developed effective, supportive subject-specialist communities, which ensure continuity of delivery, standardisation of practice and sharing of resources. The faculty prides itself on the relationships cultivated with a wide range of different employers. These employers are instrumental in supporting the delivery of curriculums through project-based learning. All learners undertake extensive work experience placements and employers are encouraged to work with teaching staff to develop relevant and innovative learning environments.
Teaching within the Services to the Public faculty develops not only personal teaching skills, but also ensures the continued development staff employability skills, vital in ensuring that learners can relate their studies to real-life working environments.
Applications will be considered from non-qualified teachers who have sector relevant experience.
The role will be based at the City of Oxford College.
